World Bank Helps Clean Croatian Coasts

The World Bank will extend a EUR60 million (USD79.8 million) loan and a USD6.4 million Global Environment Facility grant to assist Croatia in combating coastal pollution. The latest funding will be used to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of wastewater services in 30 coastal cities while diminishing the level of nutrients and other pollutants from households and industries, which contaminate coastal waters, and examining innovative wastewater treatment solutions in selected municipalities.
